Units issue while drawing polylines with metric/imperial units!
My drawing unit is meter. However, in particular cases I need to draw polylines with diameters in inches (attached). For example, I need to draw polylines with diameter of 0.25”, 0.5”, 1”, 1.5”, 2”, 2.5”, etc. In this case I need each single time to convert the inches to metric units to suit my metric unit. This is tedious as these polylines are very frequent with many values.
I’m not sure if there is a smart way such that I choose the diameter, for instance, to be 1 inch (1”) while the AutoCAD understands it to be 2.54cm. In this case the user will never pay much attention on units conversion.
Is that possible?
There's nothing that will instantly handle that on-the-fly automatic units conversion. If you can describe a convenient workflow though, it would be doable to have a custom lisp routine that handles that task. Try the customization forum for more info on coding.
Thank you guys for the help,
Sure SaadallahI did take training courses in AutoCAD, C3D and Revit! Do you think that a training may answer one’s questions! Never! Basically, question rises as one work but not necessarily during the training!
Thanks JGerth, I’ll try to post this issue in the customization form and see if workaround might be there!
